The Instrumental Subconscious
The artist-run platform and collective iii presents a series of performances under the theme The Instrumental Subconscious, combining Jungian theory about the collective ancestral subconscious with speculative theories of alien ancestral histories. In presenting this theme, iii problematizes global trends towards digital monotechnics dominated by political and industrialized production, and instead, introduces alternative approaches to media subjectivity. The works of the selected artists present highly idiosyncratic imagi-mechanizations of media, which tap into lost media histories as much as they play out subconscious urges of both the players and the played. The human-technological dream worlds performed unfold in four dimensions through sound, image, space, and the body.
